North Shore Animal League in New York is known as the world’s largest no-kill rescue. They work with over 2,000 different shelters around the world to make sure as many dogs find homes as possible. Their mission is: “Rescue. Nurture. Adopt. Educate.”
This organization has been around since 1994, and they have spent every day since then saving animals in need. They have saved over 1,000,000 animals so far!
Not only is North Shore doing their part to save as many animals as possible, but they’re also spreading the word. They are a leader in the no-kill movement, so they want the world to know about the importance of rescuing dogs, just like I do.
They take in as many animals in need as possible, and they give them the medical attention they deserve. Every year, they perform vet exams on about 85,000 animals to ensure that every dog is as healthy as can be.
Once a dog is healthy, they try to find the perfect home for them. Specifically, they make sure the dog finds a responsible, loving forever family. Each year, they find homes for about 18,000 animals! They also help with adoptions for many of their partnership organizations.
They even have a curriculum to educate others about the importance of what they do. They’ve visited thousands of different schools, libraries, and other locations to spread the word. So far, they’ve reached about 3 million people with this curriculum.
